Easy Grant Success / FRAUD

1 Las Vegas, United States Review updated:

EASY GRANT SUCCESS - MULTIPLE COMPANY NAME
AKA: Network AGENDA.COM
AKA: Various other easy profit advertising

REAL NAME: RAVEN MEDIA
REAL LOCATION: LAS VEGAS, NV

IF you have already been charged on your bank card or credit card...call your bank immediately to have these diputed. Please report them to your states internet fraus division. Since they are doing this through the internet...suggest filing an FBI fraud report. If enough of you do this they can be stopped.

They occasionally will say they made a mistake...how do they mistakenly charge your card from a company name you didnt authorize access to your card? they do it by passing you around within thier umbrella of company names ...under one master company (Raven media).

If you do nothing...they will keep taking money from your accounts! This is big money...dont let them win!
Good luck...if you call thier overseas answering lines...that just stalls you! Call your bank and get this started!

    Please remove $39.95 from my account immediately. I did not authorize for you to go into my account. I only downloaded information at $1.99. I expect this transaction to be reversed within 24 hours. This has caused my account to be overdrawn and out of balance. CANCEL ANY & ALL INFORMATION AND/OR MEMBERSHIP REQUEST IMMEDIATELY UPON THIS NOTICE!!!

    HOW DARE YOU!!!

    I was charged 39.95 when I was told by the website I would receive the CD for free and only have to pay for shipping and handling of 1.99. Please remove this charge! I did not sign up for monthly access to the website or authorize a 39.95 charge to my account.

    -Thank You.

    I think this company is also a scam. I ordered the $1.99 cd also. I just got an overdraft charge from my bank. This company charged me the 39.95. I have also did a complaint with the IC3 people.
    I hope this business goes under; that is not right what they are doing to people. I just wish there was a phone number listed for this scam site. Did you notice that?

    You can email me on your thoughts. My name is Mysty I'm at: mystyblu1@att.net
    For any one on this page.

    Easy Grant Success - charged monthly fee for nothing

    United States

    I got the "free" CD which was pretty well useless. Then when my credit card statement came I was charged $39.95 AND $7.95 for services I didn't want. PLUS this is a monthly charge!!! I called to cancel and they did, but would NOT refund my money. I feel they should refund all of my money. this is a total scam.

    Raven Media and a related company, SmartNet Development, are part of a network of internet scams. They operate a staggering number of interlinked websites involving direct marketing, clickthrough reward programs, spam and distribution of personal details such as email addresses and account numbers.

    The set up is actually very clever as they get revenue from every level of the chain.

    Joe Citizen hands over his credit card number for 'shipping ' a get rich quick CD seen on the net and finds unauthorized monthly charges appearing on his statement.

    SmartNet Development markets the websites selling the CDs to wannabe internet entrepreneurs. Each has a different domain name and front page, but all have the same disclaimer, giving a contact address and phone number of a virtual office in Las Vegas.

    Joe Citizen's details are onsold to spammers and owners of the other CD websites. They in turn pay for advertising on the websites of 'affiliate' companies, who pay to belong to the partnership of websites driving visitors to each others' sites.

    The vertical marketing system has another twist. Rewards are offered to people for signing up for a series of free trial subscriptions at the above websites. If they reach a target number, say 40, they win a plasma TV or laptop. Again, their details are onsold. Participating companies pay per clickthrough and per transaction. Rewards are popular with students who have time to make repeated phone requests for cancellation before the trial period ends, or who learn to work the system by cancelling their cards before charges are made.

    I understand Raven Media sold this brilliant concept to the company who run Google PageAds. They've built this empire without disclosing any staff names, email addresses (other than bogus) or physical street address.

    I'm aware of this because customer debit and credit card statements are cunningly attributed to merchant names very similar to reputable businesses such as mine, who daily receive emails demanding refunds and threatening legal action.

    Don't believe a word of Ryan R's assurances - as K Joseph says, it's just a stalling tactic. I urge every victim of the purpetrators of this shameless fraud to lodge a chargeback with their card issuer, and to report them to the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov.

    Update to the above. Ryan R's reply to a message emailed to ryanr@wskc.org (with the same wording as his comment above) was sent from the mailserver at iworks.com.

    His full name is Ryan Riddle, and the CEO is Jeremy Johnson, whose name I've seen in connection with Alan Dunn of SmartNet Development. The street address of iWorks is 249 East Tabernacle, St. George, UT 84770, Tel (435) 688-0634. Ryan's email address is given as ryanriddle@iworks.com.

    I imagine messages sent to ryanr@wskc.org aren't even read, but replied to by an autoresponder. Try contacting him directly by mailing, phoning or emailing him at iWorks.

    I also made an order for information on government grants, I indicated in both places listed before ordering and indicated I did not want the additional offers. My wife received a call and was told the offers were being sent and that I could simply not accept them and I would not be charged. I just found a charge for $30.00 on my bank account for one of the offers. I have left a message on the voice mail of Mr. Ryan Riddle however he has not called me back. This is a destressing and deceptive business practice in my openion. Theft is theft, and this is theft.
